Reading is fundamental to success across the curriculum and practicing at home is a key factor in enabling children to succeed. To encourage the children to read at home even more we are running a raffle system every Friday. Each child that has read four or more times in the week leading up to the raffle will earn a ticket. Prizes won so far have include a range of small games, book marks, stationary and activity packs. Congratulations to those who have already won and many thanks to all the parents who are helping the children to with their reading. It is very noticeable to class teachers that children who have this vital support at home are more confident readers and develop an even stronger love for books. Keep up the reading at home and remember how important it is to talk about what is happening in the books while the children are reading them.
